Sinag-araw ,

Thank you Mind Pump!

Hi guys, I just want to thank you for what you have and still doing for our beloved industry which is fitness. I really appreciate the effort and everything you guys do to give us relevant content, valuable information and knowledge about health and fitness. Also the random stuff you guys talked about which makes the show fun and entertaining to listen to. Listening to you guys make me feel I don’t know a lot about fitness which is a good thing because that drives me to listen to the show more and search for more knowledge through respected institutions. Looking forward for more good and authentic stuff. Thank you Doug, Sal, Adam and Justin! Love you guys!
